Synopses & Reviews
Move over, Bailey White, Dave Barry, and Garrison Keillor, and make room for P.S. Wall, America's freshest and funniest new humorist.

-- Women need to talk. It's one of our basic requirements, right up there with food, shelter, and a good moisturizer with a sunscreen.

-- Crime: The first time I got robbed, the thief stole all my underwear.
-- Cars: I used to be able to tell one car from another. A Cadillac looked like a Cadillac and a Honda looked like a sewing machine.

-- Relationships: Some women run with wolves, but the majority would be much happier with your basic lap dog.
